Federal Aviation Administration to Migrate to Hybrid Cloud on AWS and Azure

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) awarded a contract valued at $108 million to CSC to consolidate data centers and migrate FAA data and systems to a hybrid cloud environment. The CSC team includes Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure, as well as other strategic business partners.

Under the contract, the team will use the CSC Agility Platform cloud management tool to orchestrate efficient cloud deployment while leveraging alliance partners for data and cloud services.

The contract could be extended, with the potential to reach $1 billion in value over 10 years.

“CSC and our alliance partners are demonstrating the unique value that we as a team can bring to deliver an innovative, next-gen IT cloud solution that drives the FAA’s mission forward,” said Mike Lawrie, CSC’s president and chief executive officer. “By coming together as we have, we are in a unique position to help meet the agency’s operational and budgetary challenges over the life of the program.”

“Government adoption of cloud computing for mission applications is accelerating rapidly, and we are pleased to help FAA’s transition to the cloud,” said Teresa Carlson, vice president of Worldwide Public Sector, Amazon Web Services, Inc. “With AWS’s security and compliance standards – like FedRAMP, ITAR and SRG – CSC will be able to rapidly enable FAA to realize the benefits of agility, cost savings, and flexibility.”

“Microsoft is excited to continue working under the leadership of the FAA and CSC to deliver a secure, cost-effective and intelligent cloud with our FedRAMP JAB-approved Microsoft Azure,” said Greg Myers, vice president of Microsoft Federal. “This builds nicely on our collective success in moving the FAA to the cloud on the productivity side with Office 365. As the agency now moves to a hybrid cloud environment and consolidates its data centers, Microsoft’s Azure will work across applications, software, operating systems, and data to ensure success in support of the FAA’s mission of providing the safest, most efficient aerospace system in the world.”
